Thanks for joining the NUC community.
If the power output of the Tristar solar is 12V then you would need to connect UPS battery or surge protector as you would connect your desktop computer, directly to the NUC.
Your community is exactly what I have been looking for.
Yes the Tristar is configured for 12 volts. My enclosure is 9x9x18 inches and I have 5x6x8 inches for all the electronics. Are these surge protectors overkill? I can use one line for the computer and the other for the camera. Wish I could find something open chassis and cheaper. Have not thought about battery backup.
Thank you for your expertise,
